Flat-water locations, challenging wave conditions, extensive shallows and constant trade winds make Aruba a windsurfer’s paradise and one of the best windsurfing destinations in the world. Shallow waters at the Fisherman’s Huts are perfect for novice windsurfers. Here, there are certified schools where instructors rent equipment and teach beginners in gentler winds. Advanced sailors can also blast their way over the water. For almost 30 years, the Hi Winds Competition has attracted windsurfers from around the globe.
